Re: The New President.
At work today, in an auditorium filled
with many kids, on a large screen we
saw and heard Mr. Obama state his
intentions on being the new leader of
the U.S. and I have to note that even the
most tireless cynic could not help but feel
moved by his statements and by his presence.

No more awful B___. You should have heard
the boos and hisses in the auditorium when
IT was shown standing there looking withered
and just so puny and defeated. Wow. It feels so goddamn good.

The good guys won today for a change.



Current Mood: grateful

Re: Loser Creep A@$#^*! almost gets whacked!
I just had to mention this on here because I watched
the footage tonight and its so godamn amazing.
This creep is so hated that even a respected journalist
threw his shoes at him, almost slapping the creep
in the face. But what troubles me is that the creep
still has reflexes. That sucks. Close though.
Hey journalist, I still adore you even though you missed.
I hope they don't kill you.

Re: Supernatural hiatus
Usually when a series goes into hiatus,
doesn't that mean it could be in trouble
and possibly not going to return?
That is not cool. Anyone on my Flist
know the reasons behind the hiatus?

Re: SPN 4x10 "Heaven and Hell" random thoughts
There was a lot of back and forth insanity in this episode
and the events that occurred were spastic at best and
Holy Cow, Dean? Dean, damn, I am so sorry...

Re: Joy Division documentary
I remember one my LJ friends, a few months back,
posting some of their experiences at a film festival
(It might have been sundance or probably the
Toronto film festival) where they saw the documentary
"Joy Division".

Which one of you saw it? Please let me know.

Re: SPN: "Metamorphosis" thoughts
This episode was pretty rough to watch
throughout. The confrontations between
Sam and Dean in this episode seemed to enter into a new level
of dysfunctional family crises Cont. hereCollapse )

SPN in print and some recs
Tonight while I was out, I came across some
items and I found a copy of the Season One
companion. If anyone has this, I have to point
out that the photographs of Sam and Dean towards
the back of the book are incredible. Really amazing
color photographs of them. If you don't have it,
and you really are even mildly obsessed about the
series, you should pick up a copy for those color
photos of the two of them. Read moreCollapse )

Re: New workplace
Well I'm assistant teaching in a new school
for the past two weeks, its the same messed up
ghetto area but the children are not insane.

Now however, the stage when the rest of the
people who work there start picking at you
like vultures who have the ability to operate
microscopes and place you in their cheap minds
under them has begun.

I've taught at many schools and so I've grown
that extra ten ton thick steel plate of armor that covers every fibre
of my being when I'm working inside a school building so this
time should be a breeze. One thing that's going to help
me is my friend Deveundra said:

"you a great person, sensitive but courageous James"
(He's French and he's pretty good in English, getting there)

So I'm going to keep thinking that, taking it as a coda
for the extreme lame bullshit I'm about to face for the
next few weeks. I know I will only stay at this school
for just one school year. I will find a better school.
I know it. In a better neighborhood (meaning Bye Bye
Shitty East Harlem) I will find a better school. If not,
a better job involved in something else.

Re: Giorgio Morandi show tonight at the M.E.T.
Anyone interested in going with me to the
Met. tonight to see this exhibit? Its open
until 9pm.

The paintings were boring. Just little pretty still-lifes.
I think seeing one or maybe three in a group show would
be cool but his paintings all grouped together was a real
yawn fest. I don't think seeing many paintings of the same scene
with objects rearranged here and there over and over again
benefits anyone. Just way too simple. Next time I come across
an article in the New Yorker and it's about an exhibit, I'm just
going to skip those pages.

Thanks Dromo for bringing this up.
Really made my day. God I love

through the park in that awesome tracksuit.

And then there was Blondie

Suspended in "Xanadu", bubbles floating against beams of light, lasers and sing alongs.
This past Friday night, I went to see "Xanadu" with some really
nice folks and it was an interesting and highly entertaining way to see this
film. Its a hybrid musical (1980's meets the 1940's and other music genres
blender-pureed in) about a struggling artist who gets inspired by a whole
lotta magic sent his way in the form of a muse called "Kiraaaaaaaaahhhhh..."
She sings a lot and roller skates around a lot, wears flowing white
dresses and turns up where you least expect her to in such a way
that at one point someone in the audience couldn't help but scream out,

The film takes on a whole different way of thinking about it when
people in the audience start singing along to the songs (Jeff Lynne, I
do salute you for these songs) and start blowing bubbles
into the air during a really pretty animation sequence. There was
also some waving of many glow sticks during the moment in the film
when ONJ/main muse Kira breaks down during "Suspended In Time";
her sadness over not being able to join her mortal buddy on the
night of his gala opening of Xanadu. The hottest, flashiest disco
in town.

I think people should check the film out despite its infamous tag as one of the
worst films of all time especially if there's a screening of it with the sing along.
Yeah, its a huge smoking concorde plane wreck of a mess but only in 1980 could
people let go like this and well, I love glowing neon haloes of light outlining shapes
of every living thing and people in shiny outfits roller skating like there's nothing
else to live for. The curious should check out the trailer here:

Xanadu seems to have gained midnight movie status around
2006, when in San Fransisco, at The Castro movie theatre it was
part of the Disco Roller-Skating triple feature there:


and some people in attendance have commented on how awestruck they
were about the print that was screened which was in pristine and beautiful
condition with the colors bursting and the soundtrack sounding absolutely clear
and amazing. And loving the E.L.O. songs (that was the side I played the most
as a kid) I know I would have been buzzed as well. Its also been noted
that the best version of the soundtrack for all the music heads out there
is the UK import on vinyl. Its supposed to be superior to all the other
versions floating around out there. (yes I'm on the lookout for it)

At this same triple feature they screened "Skatetown U.S.A." and I think
I saw this on cable only once. Patrick Swayze looking very "Warriors"
and Scott Baio in the same movie. I have to see this again. Would like to read
fans comments on this film if you're out there. Damn amazing trailer here:

While watching Xanadu, I kept thinking Kira and her sisters remind me
of a group of other characters and I figured it out. Sailormoon. It was
a japanese animation series in the '90s about a group of girls that had the
same neon haloes of light outlining them with glitter and stars
flickering all around them like there was no tomorrow. And they
helped others out like the muses in Xanadu. I do not believe in

Just compare these two images below and I'll bet the people who created
Sailormoon had to have been inspired by Xanadu. Just look at all the faded
blues and glowing neon whites. The flowing locks of blonde tresses and yes
stars. Everywhere.
